“The kind of experience I described with a particular Rothko or Newman, or for that matter with a particular Piero della Francesca or mosaic, seems to take things to a higher level. I’m not sure “spiritual” is such a good word because of its associations with religious experience. I am referring instead to the very personal, intense relationship you can have with a work. I am not sure I want the work to provide a contemplative mood either; rather I want the work to cause me to drop everything and then slowly pick up the pieces and enter into a dialogue with it.”

Robert Mangold, as told to Sylvia Plimack Mangold in an unpublished interview
